During project. Rolling off is a vacation

Schedule it when you want to go, regardless of project or bench. Planning ahead is he key.

During a project otherwise you'll hit all the becoming available lists and start getting scrutinized for time not on a project. It's not considered against your chargeability but it's noticed by the MDs leading your area

That's sort of like saying if you find $100 on the street do you take it or leave it where it is? and if you say try and find who lost it, then count yourself in for some reinvest instead of vacation once off a project, for the same good doer feel :p

If you go during project you can flex travel

I always try to take it after or ask if I can still bill the hours I missed in other weeks of the project (like if I'm working 50-60 hours per week but have only been billing 45). At D at least when the project was sold they assumed each person would bill a certain number of hours so if you go on vacation while you're staffed you're basically losing a week of utilization to make the project more profitable.

I thought if you schedule your PTO starting day 1 on the bench that time won't be used against you and will start after you return from pto... 🤔

That's what I was thinking d1

Manager Ratings: Generally speaking, in consulting, for a long term project, if there’s a team of 6 people (1 person managing everyone, and below that person 5 different people who are associates or senior associates) is there pressure on the manager to give at least 1 of the 5 associates/senior associates a bad review? Assuming everyone performed anywhere from good to great, would a lot of managers feel it would make them look bad to let all 5 have a good review?

If this happened to you, what did you do?
